Diplo on experimenting with Madonna

“With Madonna… I had to gain her trust. I was really honest with her in the studio about what I’m doing, what we’re doing. I wasn’t like a fan. She knows I wasn’t trying to be there and make some money..”

Madonna gave Diplo full permission to go left-field on songs like “Bitch I’m Madonna,” which features production work from SOPHIE, an affiliate of London’s enigmatic PC Music collective. “I think Madonna’s manager was like, ‘Who is this person?’ and I was like, ‘Trust me, this is very cool to have him be part of this song,’” Diplo remembers. “PC Music is a really post-modern attempt at pop. It’s something the kids are generating because everything is so clean as far dance music [is concerned].”
